...odds and ends...
...first of all, I have been out of pocket for the last few days, as my son (15 months old) had to have 'minor' surgery today, to 'open' a tear duct in one eye, as well as having his adenoids (throat stuff) removed. He is doing well, and zonked out in his crib tonight.
Also, Jean Howard of 'Discovering Ida' has found info regarding an episode of Dinah Shore, which featured Ginger AND Ida Lupino... no 'footage', tho... sounds like an OGRE assignment to me... :-) Go check it out at this link:
And finally, just a 'blurb'...or as you young 'uns call it nowadays, a 'Tweet' (well, if I was hooked up with 'Twitter'..why isn't it 'Tweeter'?) ...well, I was just reading the book I mentioned back on November 3, and ran across this passage regarding politics, which just stuck me as "Classic Ginger": "...There was talk in the papers (in the late 1940's) that Ginger was to run for Congress as a representative for California. I asked her about this and about what would be her platform. She smiled and replied, 'Cheaper and better ice cream for all!' - that was enough hint to me the rumour was nonsense."
Well, that's about it - just 'updating' and staying 'in touch' a bit... Sorry for the absence of any GingerPics... will try to make up for it in the next post :-]
Keep It Gingery, y'all!!!
It is my hope that I can continue to make 'G-ology' interesting and informative regarding the 'Beautiful Science' of VKM, which is SUCH a great topic!!! ...And remember, your comments are what make Gingerology click - so keep cranking them out!
Thanks again, JW
